About Me

Caledonia, Northern Illinois, United States
I am a Thirty-Something mother of four beautiful girls. My love for them, and the joy I've experienced during this crazy ride called motherhood, has inspired me to help make the dream of a family become a reality for couples through gestational surrogacy. I've proudly helped A&T, as their lives were forever changed when they welcomed a son in April 2010 and K&S were blessed as parents in Sept 2012 when we welcomed their twin boys. I completed my final surrogacy journey Nov 2015 when I helped a wonderful local couple J&W and Big Brother add their family with the birth of twin boys. I am so very fortunate to have wonderful relationships with each one of my surro-families and continue to share in their lives.

17 weeks

I can swallow and blink! I'm a 1/2 pound and my heart pumps 25 quarts a day.

Another week has gone by. Everything is going great. We did get another peek at the lil guy today and once again he was not shy to show off his stuff. Heartbeat was a strong and steady 146 bpm and he was busy and active once again. I'm feeling lots of movement now, still not strong enough to feel from the outside but noticeably there from the inside throughout the day. It appears that Twin A remains the same but the bleed wasn't even detected by the tech so maybe this means not more spotting from here on out. I still have instructions to take an easy and remain on pelvic rest. We are going back in another week just for another peek and then after that the next appt will be mid December for the 20wk "anatomy scan".

IM joined me again today, always so nice to see her. She got to meet my daycare crew and hang out a bit and stuck around through nap time so we could chow down on some Chinese together.

Here's another look at lil "Baby G". Doesn't he look cozy?
